Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I worked on Geography. She has a map test of India tomorrow so we reviewed for that. Also, I guided Olivia as she took Geography notes from the text book Chapter 26. Olivia and I spent time reviewing her assignments (those turned in and those lacking) and her quiz/test grades so far this semester so that she can spend the next 4 weeks seeking improved grades. Finally, we set a couple of goals for the week."
"In this session, we discussed unit conversions for the metric system and the different names for each unit. We also worked through more specific math problems involving quantitative comparison. For the verbal section, the student completed a worksheet on fill-in-the-blank sentence completion problems, which she did very well at. Lastly, we worked through a reading comprehension passage."
"Prepared for her high school chemistry exam. Worked through balancing equations, net ionic equations, solubility rules, preservation of charges, etc. Sent out a presentation recapping the day's session later that day to student/parent along with a list of areas that she needs to "touched on" prior to the test."
"We spent a while talking about ratios and proportions, and extending those idea to solving single equations for variables. The student understood the concepts fairly well as we went through them one at a time. As he continues to work example problems and see the relationships among the different mathematical concepts he is learning, he will continue to become more confident and test-ready."
"The student and I studied for Monday's Chapter 6 exam. We went over what her notes should look like from here on out (with an example from a student in her class), reviewed her homework for 6.8, and went over the practice test. We reviewed the three different types of equations of a line, and how to graph each of them. She has a good grasp on all the concepts to be tested this week."
"The student has two larger projects coming up in his German class. The first is a reading comprehension project where he has to take notes and share who's doing what, based on the various texts the teacher has assigned. He started working on that in our last session. This new assignment is a writing assignment, where he is to correspond with a fictitious pen-pal in Germany and discuss the environment. He wrote the required back-and-forth responses, talking about the differences between Germany's and the US's recycling systems."
